Nick Wells Announces “Beneath the Bassline: Turned Up To 11”
Filmmaker Nick Wells has announced the followup to his popular bass documentary, Beneath The Bass Line. The sequel, Turned Up To 11, dives into some of the more outrageous gig stories and “Spinal Tap” moments from the world’s best bassists.
“Any number of things can go wrong when you’re a bass player on tour,” the film’s Kickstarter campaign explains. “From moments of absolute genius to moments of downright stupidity and outrage. There are some rock ‘n’ roll stories that you just couldn’t make up! A spin off from the original documentary – Beneath The Bassline, which premiered at the 2017 Doc ’N Roll Film Festival in London – we’ve tried to capture as many as we can for this film.”
The film will includes interviews and stories from Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, David Ellefson, Michael League, Tal Wilkenfeld, Billy Sheehan, Robert Trujillo, John Patitucci, Thundercat, and more.
Beneath the Bassline: Turned Up To 11 is currently finishing up production. A Kickstarter campaign to complete the film is underway with backing rewards ranging from a digital download of the film up to an Associate Producer credit.
